cameras the fbi has concealed in their car. >> let you have the money. >> oh, oh. are you sure that that's okay? >> yeah, it's fine. >> welcome to 60 minutes on cnbc. i'm bob simon. in this edition, we turn our attention to some foreign intrigue. first, a story about a mysterious computer virus that struck an iranian nuclear plant. later, the report of how american agents hunted a notorious arms dealer. and finally, an account of a chinese-american spy trying to steal u.s. military secrets for china. we begin with the story of stuxnet, a computer virus considered to be the world's first destructive cyberweapon. it was launched several years ago against an iranian nuclear facility, almost certainly with some u.s. involvement. but as steve kroft reported in march of 2012, the implications and possible consequences of this new kind of warfare are now being studied intensely. >> i do believe that the cyber threat will equal or surpass the threat from counter terrorism in the foreseeable future. >> there's a strong likelihood that the next pearl harbor that we confront could very well be

, have you followed this -- everybody is waiting for the fbi to go to benghazi to find the people that killed our ambassador. but the fbi will not go to benghazi. they are in tripoli at our embassy there which has good security. they will not go to benghazi because the security is so awful. even now, 12, 14 days after the attack. so you have got to know that these al qaeda terrorist crazies, they knew that, and they were gunning for our ambassador and the white house was informed of it right away and they are covering that up, jack jacobs. >> it is absolutely true. now it's known the fbi is not only in benghazi, they are not going either. indeed it is even worse than that. there is a large number of witnesses whom they could interview in benghazi who will not go to tripoli to get interviewed by the fbi. they are very much concerned about their names being released, their families being in trouble. if they testify. they are not going anywhere. the fbi is not going to give any information from people who were on the ground and know what happened in benghazi. >> jennifer rubin, back to yo

fbi are not there. but reportedly documents are left around unsecured. this is also an incredible story. >> it indeed is, larry. a "washington post" reporter visited the wounded consulate today and found no presence of security. the post found sensitive official documents scattered on the floors, including evacuation plans in case of attack, ambassador stevens' schedule and the names of libyan nationals working for the consulate, all lying in the open unsecured. the investigators have remained in tripoli hundreds of miles away from benghazi because of safety concerns and libyan contractors say they have not been contracted by the libyan or american governments. the post reports the only security at the compound is two private guards paid for by the landlord. larry, back to you. >> wow, great stuff. i turn back to the kudlow caucus for a quick whip around on this subject. is the benghazi couatastrophe going to become a big issue in this campaign? >> i think it dents president obama's reputation as an international leader. i think ambassador rice got it completely wrong trying to co

significant impact on future policy in the region. one, fbi investigators have finally arrived more than three weeks late to investigate the site in libya where terrorists killed our ambassador and three others. two, turkey fired on syrian government targets today following yesterday's deadly attack on a border village. and 3, in iran police continue to crack down on protests amid flairing tensions over the nation's plunging currency. so iran is the currency collapse going to lead to a revolution? here now is former deputy assistant secretary of defense the currency is off about 40%. steve hanke of johns hopkins, an old friend, is estimating that the inflation rate per month in iran is now 70%. per month inflation rate. so nobody wants reals, 70% inflation. stocks are -- they can't get rid of the meat on the shelves. is this a revolutionary situation through currencies, money and inflation? >> it certainly could be, larry. even the europeans are talking about doing a little more of this. diplomacy has failed in getting at iran's nuclear program. so economic sanctions are the next step sh

fbi won't even even go in now to investigate the case. and i want to stay with this. what about this coverup? >> it is a coverup. >> susan rice goes out and basically lies to the american people on a number of news shows, we now know that the administration knew right away that this was a pre-planned al qaeda terrorist operation and they lied and now they're covering up the lie. >> within 24 hours they knew it was an al qaeda operation. >> so that's why they don't want obama loose on this foreign policy. >> obama never takes -- he never says i'm to blame. it's always george bush is to blame, somebody else is to blame. he's never to blame. he is to blame. it's on his watch. >> go ahead, mark. >> the one thing that i have to say in defense of the administration here, and i know the security situation in the north africa quite well because of my own experience. it was confusing in the beginning. but it's no excuse if going out there and trotting out some alibi that it was not a terrorist attack. so i agree with that. but the one thing i want to say is the president did give a remarkably
